I've been thinking recently that this short chain stay steep seat tube angle
trend is dumb. Much more so for longer legged riders. This Jones review seems
to validate that part of my thinking. When new 29er riders would say that they
felt in the bike as opposed to on the bike I think that was a wheelbase
affect. 29ers climb better because they are longer. I see that Norco has some
new bikes where the chain stays increase in length with the frame size. Makes
sense to me.
